LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 26

Rare rootsy work from Russell Hoke – a set of recordings that are mostly from the 80s, featuring Russell on banjo and vocals – but with the same sort of unique vibe as his guitar-based albums! There's a really odd, offbeat feel going on here – a timeless sense in the presentation of the music, but a very unsettling quality to some of the lyrics – a bit like the blend of past and present that you'd hear on the first Palace Brothers album – but mostly recorded by Russell in the decade before! The banjo's clearly schooled in bluegrass, but is set free to explore other modes – as are Hoke's own vocals, which remain as distinct as ever. Titles include "Happy Anyway", "Hangin At Charlies", "Falling Rain", "Wanderin & Wonderin", "Artificially Wise", "Twenty First Century Ice Age", "Vanished Realm", and "Scorpio Madi". (Very limited. Comes in a hand-assembled package from Russell himself.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Thumb, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Spacey fingerstyle guitar meanderings from Robbie Basho – a contemporary of John Fahey who helped create the genre of tripped out, open tuning excursions!

Bird/B- Music/Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s/1970s/2000s. New Copy
Not the bird calls you might guess from the cover and title, but a collection of songs from independent woman's music label Bird Records and our friends at B- Music/Finders Keepers!

Lion/Wah Wah (Spain), 1971. New Copy
A great British folk set from Steve Tilston – featuring all acoustic and all original material that gives it a pretty wonderful and timeless feel!

Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs
A beautifully trippy duo who work here mostly with electronics – but who use the instruments in very organic ways that are almost acoustic! There's an earthy, almost hippieish quality to the sounds on the set – music that belies the pair's placement in the pre-New Age instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nero's Neptune, 1978. New Copy
Pere Ubu captured in their early prime – here in a long-lost live show that's finally reaching the light of day!
